The sustainability of trade accounts of the G-7 countries
This article has examined the sustainability of the trade accounts of the G-7 countries by analysing the long-run equilibrium between exports and imports. We applied the techniques of the recently developed nonstationary panel data analysis and found that the trade accounts of the G-7 countries are very likely to be nonstationary variables. This implies that trade accounts are not sustainable for the G-7 countries. Therefore, some appropriate policies must be implemented to prevent trade imbalances from increasing.
